problems. how do we make sure the student gets the cost of education? how do we address time demands? i believe that is one of the areas that has changed the most, the extent to which athletes are tied up in athletic preparation. we need to make sure students are not exploited. how do we address that? how do we address lifetime educational benefits? if we do get the right political restructuring that would allow us to address it, if we do not do that, that is on us. i was sorry to see nfl europe go away. everybody can bring a lawsuit, that is the american way. the courts decide what they decide. while you are in the system, you ought to know what the rules are when you come in. we have work to do in that area. i like for 18- and 19-year-old young people to have a choice. we ought to do we can to make it the best educational and athletic experience that we can. the agents oftentimes view these kids as future clients. maybe they can provide the support to train them. that is what a lot of them want. if they want to be in college, that is terrific. >> what is the biggest change you woul

go to a community college in infield, connecticut. they had been offering a manufacturing education program for 12 years and had 98% to 100% placement rate. we have 12 community colleges. it makes no sense in a state that is number two per capita in submarines and construction. almost all of it is high-value added as opposed to lower value added. we were not reshaping our schools to produce the human capital. >> did you find out why not? >> yes, it was outside the box. it was outside people's educational box. we now have added three additional community colleges. that model is being used to rebuild the high schools, which the state runs. yes, we are changing. >> thank you, i really appreciate it. i want to thank you for all the school safety measures. rick alluded to secretary duncan's piece. has the federal government become irrelevant to the work you are doing, or is there a role the federal government can play that complements your role? -- complements the role the state and local government can play? >> let's go back to the comments about the $100 million grant program. even if
